DALLAS –Everyone is invited to relax in the grass and enjoy the summer festival for the Brookhaven College School of the Arts Dancers’ Theatre. For more than 25 years, the summer festival has given dancers and choreographers a chance to sharpen their skills. The summer dance festival will entertain audiences with three free performances Aug. 1–3 at 8:30 p.m. in the International Courtyard.
